Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great depth, this Cab Sauvignon reaches out with long arms to embrace the palate with cool climate charm. Deep ruby, dry and an integrated 14.5% ABV. Blackberry, cassis and astringent black tea on a long finish. Medium tannins and full bodied. Pair with braised red meats or BBQ steak. Tasted March 2017. 89 points.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
